Most mothers when asked what’s the most unforgettable day in her lifetime was and they would immediately tell that it was the day her 1st baby is born. Such was the instance with me and my ma. Insane as it may look but we constantly make our mums do stuff for us prior like our laundry, fix up after us and thinking about it nowadays made me feel bad on how unthoughtful we were back in the day. Growing up observing my momma juggle several things simultaneously had me reckoning of never needing to become a mommy someday. I mean, who would wish to have a 24 hour job with no breaks, day-offs, holidays and worst, a delayed wage? And everyday you have to manage hard-headed youngsters and constant household chores.
But what is the real essence of being a mother?
What does it need to turn into a mommy? Are mothers really that special for them to have their own annual festivity? These are the queries that I did not want to be faced with.
Luckily, the good heavens above bent my fortune and turned the tides and finally had me cross to the other side of maternal phobia. Here are some of the greatest things I have learned during maternity.
I learned that the phrase “Its Okay, Mommys here” works like magic; That only one pretty face exists no matter what the circumstances are and mothers have it; When you hear the quote “Mother Knows Best” is equivalent to the phrase “I told you so” or you have to have your mom’s approval on everything specially your choice of women or men in your life.
Most of all, being a mom means being the sole light in the household when there is dark, a source of happiness when there is sadness, where hope comes from when there is hopelessness, the ultimate source of love. A bundle of emotions comes with motherhood that defies all known reason.
Being a mother means giving life to your kids, teach them things, let them know right from wrong, giving them freedom to live their lives but not living it for your children, not learning it for them, not deciding it for them but in the end be accountable for them.
Because being a mother is to support your children all the way even if they choose to take the road you dont want them to. Because being a mother is to always be there even if it hurts. Once can never cease to be a mother.
Courage. The main trait one has to exhibit in order to be called a real mother is courage. One other thing that makes most mothers special is their ability to take the place of all other people or in other words being in their shoes. And why are they so important to be remembered because they brought you into this world and even gave up theirs so you can be happy.
I know this because I have a very wonderful mom. Now that I am a mother my self, the best part of my life is in fact my children who values me and I will love them wholeheartedly forever.
